Tailored Information Sessions

If our public information sessions are not what you're looking for we conduct tailor made, one hour, group sessions. These are customised, age and developmentally appropriate sessions to increase the knowledge and awareness of reproductive and sexual health and relationship issues for people living with cognitive disability.

Tailored education sessions can be held at a service or community space or a residential unit, or you could register to attend one of our calendared, topic specific sessions at our Box Hill site.

For more information about tailored sessions, including pricing, please contact our Disability Services team at disability@fpv.org.au or call 03 9257 0130.
